With four albums under their belt, Being As An Ocean has absolutely made their presence known in the melodic hardcore scene. The tour package stopped at one of Orlando’s most well known venues, Soundbar. When I saw that the show was scheduled to be put on there, I was a little confused to be honest. Soundbar isn’t known to be that spacious, and with a package this great (Varials, Have Mercy and Counterparts), I knew it would be absolutely packed.
And it was. The venue was sold out.
That being said, when Being took the stage, I felt like I was transported to a completely different space. Their beautiful colored lights and stage presence made me forget I was in a packed out room.
Joel even managed to jump into the crowd and climb up the to balcony, only to jump back off into the crowd again. People swarmed around him and poured their hearts out through the lyrics they were singing back to him, and you could tell the vibe completely changed once their fans were able to look into Joel’s eyes and sing the songs together.
